Many visitors to my website are using mass downloaders and are mirroring my website. Since they are using downloaders, my bandwidth is too much and im really in trouble.
So is there any way to block the ip automatically using some program, when it exceeds 3Mb per day [to a specific ip]?
In awstats (status showing soft), it shows the data tranfer per ip [usually of to 10 or 20 ip's].
So is there anyway to get a free program, which may be checking the data transfer rate to a single ip address and block the access from that ip when it exceeds 3Mb per day ?
I have tried editing the .htaccess file by blocking the getright,offline explorer and other [url removed, login to view] it seems of no use to me.
So i need to know whether someone can suggest me a better way to block ips by monitoring it with the data transfer.
Dont bid much, this is may be just a small program and for a person who know how to do it can do it in few mins.
